Nevertheless, SS terminals have been visualized on SS dendrites in the peri ventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus, and anterior hypothalamic SS release can be inhibited presynaptically in autoregulatory fashion. Besides, pretreatment with cysteamine enabled the demonstration to be made that the GHRF mRNA concentration is negatively regulated by SS in a subset of arcuate nucleus neurons bearing SS receptors [5]. The ontogenic development of SS and its receptors could be involved in the maturation of the brain [96].
